A unique opportunity to buy a beautiful car that was specially commissioned for the Peking Paris 2016 rally and built by the industry renowned Dave Jenkins.
With the highest specifications possible and all the latest competition upgrades for this vehicle type, this Mk 1 rally ready Escort is unlike any other and bears no relation to anything else on the market. Effectively brand new, never raced or rallied, with the all-important FIA log book, and competition ready, this car has a fully documented build history.
Due to a change of personal circumstances the vendor has very reluctantly placed this rally ready car up for sale.
